Living with Uterine Fibroids (UF)

Published July 2022, US report

"Living with Uterine Fibroids" is a syndicated patient report which offers low-cost, high-value quantitative and qualitative insights into patient attitudes and behaviour.

We recognise pharma brands need access to unique insights if they are to develop effective products and treatments and relevant communications messages. Living with UF is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of the UF disease patient journey, from diagnosis through treatment and ongoing management, unveiling patients attitudes, needs and treatment programmes.

Gain an in-depth understanding of:

  • The presentation history and diagnosis pathway from the perspective of patients
  • Patient attitudes to their uterine fibroids and the impact on their lives
  • What patients are currently doing to cope with their condition, including treatments taken, satisfaction levels and use of OTC treatment
  • Attitudes and behaviours with regard to treatment switching and adherence
  • Attitudes to interactions with healthcare professionals
  • Patient wishes and unmet needs
  • Patients’ sources of information and use of digital tools, such as apps and social media
